, i think, between the white house and the israeli prime minister. president obama and netanyahu have not gotten along. that's been well documented. but the united states is now reaching out going to help israel in a new way. so that does strengthen bibi netanyahu's long-term position, as well. >> final question the other actor in the region we've been talking about all of them is egypt, of course. the u.s. has really fallen all over itself thanking egypt for its role in achieving a cease-fire here. but over the last 24 hours, something fascinating happened in egypt. the leader there mohamed morsi game himself immunity from any kind of legal challenge until there is a new constitution in that country. some people say that essentially lines him up to be a dictator. >> well he certainly gives him very worrying powers. authoritarian powers. he has not used them. there are lots of reasons he did that. egypt is under the gun to try to produce a new constitution. some of the judges that president mubarak put in toward the end may not be as neutral and objective. let's wait and see how morsi

? >> alex, i think they are off to a relatively rough start. president obama expected to invite congressional leaders back to the white house next week after the holiday, but it seems at this point aides are trying to hammer out the beginnings of the deal. republicans seem to be digging in their heels on the issue of taxes, saying they don't want to see the bush era tax cuts expire for the wealthiest americans. of course, that is something the democrats have been adamant about. so they're stuck on this old issue of taxes. and also stuck on the issue of entitlements. we had harry reid come out and basically say he wasn't open to reforming especially social security. so there's a big question mark about how they're going to move forward. remember, these are sort of their opening bids. presumably there is room for some sort of movement on either side. in terms of getting a deal done by the first of the year, i think there's a lot of pressure on both sides to try to get something done here. you remember the debt ceiling debate. after that sort of knockdown dragout fight, congress ha
to you. what are you hearing from the white house on this cease-fire? >> happy thanksgiving, alex. the white house is encouraged by this cease-fire, as you point out. it is a diplomatic success for president obama, for secretary of state hillary clinton. but they are also viewing this cease-fire very cautiously. they know it is fragile so they're keeping that in mind as they continue to monitor the situation. president obama spent part of his day yesterday reaching out to leaders in the region, thanking them for making this cease-fire possible. called egyptian president mahmoud morsi, and benjamin netanyahu. president obama reiterated the united states believes israel has the right to defend itself. also said the united states would take this moment to work towards helping israel to further secure the region. but also talked about the importance of trying to achieve a broader security agreement in the region. and in speaking to egyptian president mahmoud morsi, president obama really thanked him for playing such a pivotal role. the white house saying that is one of the big things

president obama has rejected this kind of approach. i'm glad the white house is calling them on it saying what i will not do is have a process that is vague saying we are sort of going to raise revenuear close loopholes that have not been identified. he won this election on arithmetic. the white house said it has not seen a realistic proposal from republicans. he keeps saying the math doesn't work. you can't raise enough revenue. obama would be open to proposals so long as the tax rate remains on the table. carney, the president's carney said social security shouldn't be on the table. it is not currently a driver of the deficit. that's an economic fact. >> we've been open to revenue by closinging loopholes as long as it's tied to spending cuts. >> as long as it's mitt romney's plan. that's what we're for. >> stephanie: what? you're acting like, it's almost like a hostage crisis. like they don't have the gun and are issuing demands. like what? >> what are you talking about? >> stephanie: exactly. mike in philadelphia, you're on the "stephanie miller show." hi, mike. >> caller: hi, steph ho

clinton carries the official white house message there is new attention being paid to the president's strategic options in the region. "the washington post" writes president obama's decision to send his top diplomat on an emergency middle east peace making mission tuesday marked an administration shift to a more active vist role in the region's affairs and offered clues to how he may use the political elbow room afforded by a second term. beyond a cease-fire agreement, the president could try to throw his political clout behind a larger, long-term solution here. so far, no deal has materialized between israel and gaza. also, a bus bombing in tel aviv could push both sides further apart. 19 people were injured, three critically, in what was the first terror attack in israel in four years. police say, however, the incident was not a suicide bombing. joining me now, former assistant secretary of state, p.j. crowley and from tel aviv, nbc news correspondent stephanie gosk. thank you, both. stephanie, i want to start with you, is the attack we were just discussing in tel aviv an indicati
obama for standing by it's side during the fighting but did the white house handle the situation effectively? >> welcome. how are you? i want to read you a tweet. president obama's stueady suppot of the situation helped to solve the situation. >> donald trump. the fact that he has gone on record assaying that would indicate that it would be very, very hard for republicans to be critical of him. >> i don't see how or why he would be critical of a cease fire. it is probably too early to have a final conclusion of this. i would prefer to say i would be cautiously optimistic. you shouldn't get too everly excited of the tensions when you see the scene that i saw of the body being dragged through the streets of gaza. you get a sense of the elements that you are dealing with here flt as well as the people on the palestinian side. let's hope they can continue on that road. >> i think the egyptian role is sill can't indeed. the rise of the muslim broth brotherhood and how they would behave. to the extent that the president spoke to them three hours timese last several hours. he was workin
. the white house says frankly that's not good enough. aides say president obama spoke with the house speaker john boehner and the senate majority leader harry reid over the weekend. and the president is confident they can work out some sort of agreement. mike emanuel on fox top story live in the d.c. newsroom tonight. mike, it looks like some republicans are changing their tunes. >> shep, republicans say they favor both major spending cuts and additional revenue from tax reform with lower tax rates. the pledge you mentioned is identified with americans for tax reforms grover norquist who has gotten many republicans to promise they won't vote to raise taxes. south carolina senator lindsey graham is pushing back saying capping deductions would help generate revenue. the top republic on the senate budget committee explained graham's position. >> he is conditioning any tax increase on fixing these programs, social security and medicare, particularly in making sure that they are sound for the future. so that's lindsey's position. and he has talked about accepting revenue to accomplish that goal.
. but in this business of what would have happened if obama had lost the popular vote and still won the white house, i think you would have had a very different reaction from obama, and i think that in the year 2000 if al gore had been able -- if the shoe had been on the other foot and gore had become president while bush got the popular vote, he would have responded differently, he would have acknowledged that, and he would have wanted to do something about it. that has to change at some point, and it's going to have to change after -- probably after both sides' objections are gored. >> you think we're going to get a change in our constitution to make it a popular vote? >> you don't need it to be the constitution. there's the national popular vote initiative that would do it through the states. >> yeah. >> you can do it without changing the constitution and see how you like it. >> interesting. the states could just simply decide to go by the popular vote of the country. anyway, the chorus of republicans predicting a romney win was loud. michael barone predicted romney would win. peggy noonan said all

. obama controls the white house, we control the house, democrats controls the senate. but guess what? the american people don't expect a status quo in governance. gregg: there's a recent rasmussen poll and, juan, i want you to take a look as well, 57% agree that raising taxes on those making more than $250,000 a year is a good idea. can you put that up on the screen, if you would, the poll? 35% disagree, so almost 60% now think the president's probably on the right track. juan, i mean, given his re-election circumstances have changed, have they not, and the president has, therefore, a political advantage? >> i think he has some leverage, and he certainly can point to the election results, not only his re-election, but with, of course, adding democrats in the congress and in the house. and you look at the new incoming house republicans, i think a dozen of them have refused to sign norquist's pledge. and in addition to saxby chambliss, you have tom coburn and i think bob corker of tennessee and i don't know mccain of arizona -- and john mccain of arizona all making noises about it's ti
excitement over obama's victory. ahmadinejad accused the election as capitalists. obama wasted no time in showing his continued interest in the region. white house officials announced on thursday the president is expected to attend the east asia summit next week in cambodia. >>> presidential candidates are stepping up their campaigns. the front runner is taking a tough stance on foreign policy and the opposition camps announced a surprise move. park said historical and territorial issues are causing diplomatic conflicts in east asia. she said she'd also be open to dialogue. park said south korea will not tolerate provocations by north korea. that includes nuclear and missile development. they want to open offices in each other's capitals. she said she'd seek to hold talks with north korean leader kim jong-un. she said the senkaku islands are not open to negotiation. japan claims the islands, south korea controls them and calls them tokdo. park showed a willingness to negotiate on the deal. the negotiations have been suspended since 2004. opinion polls show park is leading by more than
president. the reality is that they are here in the long game. they will be here long after barack obama leaves the white house. we have to uphold our value, as well as our national interests. and that's going to eye think present a challenge that was tough for the last administration to walk, george w. bush and it's going to be tough for this one to walk. >> eric: when they say egypt goes islamist and the region is going to go islamist and fall in with iran and egypt and israel, big trouble for israel, what is your prediction? >> irany a different story. i don't think you are in danger of creating a little tehran on the nile. but the reality, this is not an arab spring. this is an islamist spring. when fair and free elections are held in this part of the world, it is the most ideological, well-organized and most committed parties that do the best. that happened in palestine, in lebanon and in iraq and it's happening in egypt. we have to figure out a way to keep morsi, with the incentives and dis-incentives we have to push toward a pluralist form of government. i have to actual, eric, it
